secrets so deep review

if you’re after a quick, fast paced read, then i know the perfect book for you!

secrets so deep is a nice sized fast paced book where something’s always happening. there’s a lot of intrigue and weird stuff happening in this book, enough to keep me flicking the pages.

the writing style was really nice – it made it an easy read. the prose was beautiful but not too flowery (if it’s too flowery, i get bored!).

the mystery was good, although i found i guessed some things fairly early on (but i still enjoyed it!). there was some hauntingly beautiful scenes, that really showcased the authors ability to write in this genre.

unfortunately, i found the romance was a bit over the top. it kinda took away from the actual storyline, and we could’ve gone without it entirely.

the only issue i had with this book was that the main character (avril) was immature and annoying at times. (but!! it’s a young adult novel, so i can’t fault the character or the author for this. i just thought i should point it out for full transparency).

this author has been on my tbr for a while – since the release of dark and shallow lies, which i still haven’t read (smh!!). i wish I’d picked up a book of hers sooner, as it was thoroughly enjoyed.

    I love a good romance, but sometimes they are just thrown into a story with no real reason

    Even though I want romance in pretty much every book I read, I do get what you’re saying. The romance has to be believable and relevant to what’s going on. I’m glad you enjoying this one despite its couple of flaws.

      i’m glad you can agree. i like things to be relevant otherwise it should be edited down.
